Ricky and I have recorded almost 100 dives in the Caribbean, and we're always looking for great diving when we visit the islands. Unfortunately hurricanes in the past few years have reeked havoc on the coral in most of our favorite dive sites. Well, not so in Bequia! We dove 4 different sites and were pleasantly surprised. My underwater photos aren't great, but here are a few...

Most of our friends have never heard of Bequia. It's near St. Vincent, and is still somewhat of a sleepy fishing village, isolated enough to be unspoiled. The fishermen still have a whaling season and hunt the whales in open sailing boats with hand-thrown harpoons. They also build traditional wooden fishing boats on the beach under the palm trees.
